Controversy at the Rellys for second consecutive year
For the second year in a row, controversy reigns at the Relly Awards, as Regis Philbin
again is shut out in the "Best Regis" category - again at the hands of a "Saturday Night
Live" veteran. This year, comedian and actor Jimmy Fallon took home the prestigious
"Best Regis" Golden Stool.|
Philbin accepted the award on behalf of the absent Fallon, but shocked the
Relly audience by reading a purported letter from Fallon, essentially passing
the award to Philbin. The document later was revealed to be a fraud. After
the broadcast, Philbin asserted that "Next year will be the year that regis is
In another shocking twist, porcine princess Miss Piggy eked out a win in
the "Best Non-Human Guest" category, triumphing over such competition as
Mariah Carey's dog Jack, "Star Wars" superstar Chewbacca and Barney the Purple
Dinosaur. Singing superstar Carey attempted to call in during the Relly
taping to express her disappointment over Jack being passed over in favor of
the popular pig.
Another unhappy nominee was talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lost the
"Best New Co-Host" Relly to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest. Kimmel is
rumored to be readying a rebuttal for air on tonight's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Philbin and fellow host Kelly Ripa were the biggest winners on Friday, and
the only nominees to walk away with multiple Golden Stools (two and three,
respectively), while cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" won in the "Funniest
Guest" category. "American Idol's" Bo Bice accepted his "Best Reality Guest"
award live via satellite from Nashville, and Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson,
AJ McLean and Howie Dorough checked in from Los Angeles to receive their Relly
for "Favorite Music Guest".

||I love you Myles (40,170)
by Joyce from USA|
Myles, you sound just like me. And it's nice to see more people listening to their ears and not being afraid to say, ummm that sucks rather than make excuses and trick themselves into thinking it was awsome. I think she should never use the words "moment" "festive" and "dahling", focus on on rehabilitating that voice, cut her hair to a classy bob d... read more

||I agree with all the critiques (40,169)
by Kenny from Canada|
I agree with all the criticism that's been mentioned by everyone here. First, that her vanity is what is leading to her downfall. She seems like she wants so desperately to cling to that girly Barbie/Marilyn Monroe image that she's lost sight of what has drawn her fans to her in the first place - which is her musicality, passion and her voice. She'... read more

||Mariah's voice (40,168)
by Alex from England|
I can understand some people are scared Mariah will fade away into oblivion. But what you guys should realize is that even after the debacle that was Glitter and the breakdown moment (though I loved the album) when everyone was saying she is over, she is still here 12 years after that. Yes, she has issues with her voice, nothing new, it's been 15 y... read more
